1. In a large resealable plastic bag, mix together rice vinegar, lime juice, brown sugar, and curry paste. Add beef to bag and seal. Marinate for 10 minutes, turning once.
2. While beef marinates, heat 1 1/2 tsp. of the oil in a large, nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrots and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and stir-fry for 2 minutes more. Transfer vegetables to a plate.
3. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to pan. Remove beef from bag, reserving marinade. Add beef to pan and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes, until uniformly browned. Add vegetables and reserved marinade and stir for 1 minute, scraping pan to loosen any browned bits.
